At Union Quay Medical Centre we seek excellence in all aspects of healthcare. We will treat each of our patients individually with dignity and respect recognising, at all times, the right of everyone to access the care and treatment they need to achieve the best possible healthcare outcomes. We value a proactive attitude towards our patient’s health.

We believe that all patients have the right to expect that the healthcare they receive will consider their requirements and needs,  we will encourage them to take part in decisions about their health and wellbeing and provide them with the information and support to do so.
